Chris Brown Apologizes For GMA Freakout, Feels "Exploited" By Robin Roberts

by at . Comments

Chris Brown made headlines this week, and not strictly for the release of his new album, F.A.M.E. He may have even more enemies to forgive at this point.

The star exploded on Good Morning America followed a tense on-air chat with Robin Roberts, reportedly smashing a dressing room window and storming out.

During a Wednesday appearance on the BET video show 106 and Park, Brown made his first public comment on the incident, offering this apology:

Easy, Breezy

"First of all, I want to apologize to anybody who was startled in the office, or anybody who was offended or really looked, and [was] disappointed at my actions."

Brown added: "Because I'm disappointed in the way I acted."

Brown says he was "thrown off" by Robin's line of questioning, and said that he feels she only brought up the Rihanna incident in an effort to "exploit me."

The singer says he did in fact explode backstage "to release the anger that I had inside me," but added that "I got very emotional and I apologize for that."

While Roberts says Chris was aware she would ask about Rihanna, he said the talking points approved by his people were about "positivity" and his album.

ABC says no "talking points were offered."

GMA host Roberts and ABC at large aren't holding a grudge in any case. Yesterday, she said she was "shocked like everybody else" by how things turned out.

Today, Roberts added that "it's time to move on."

Her relationship with Brown has been "wonderful," she said, and he'd be welcomed back. ABC is not pressing charges and Chris is still on for DWTS next week.

He got lucky in that respect. The apology is a good start. If we were Brown, for the sake of his career prospects if nothing else, we wouldn't stop at just one.

What do you think? Are you on Chris' side?

I don`t agree with what he did but for Godness sake it`s been 2 years since that happend and it`s time for him to move on.He came there cos he wanted to promote the album FAME and talk about his career and music but why all the time Rihanna`s name has to be mentioned??Give the guy a break,he apoligized for what he did several times his human afterall everyone makes mistakes but now it`s time that he wants to move on and if he got that sort of angry nervous character why their doing this mentioning the same thing that happend two years ago? Sometimes i think they do it on purpose so that media will have a subject to talk about.Let him enjoy this album that i`m sure he worked hard for it.

I think that chris brown's actions should be taken seriously i have to agree with @reb r here on this one chris needs to stop apologizing and change his behavior he needs to be more honest and truthful like he should have been about his ex girl friend rihanna and how he abused her but he never told the truth about that at all he just denied the whole thing i still like chris brown's misic but his actions Stinks i think he needs to change his behavior and grow up and act more mature instead of making a fool of himself he indeed is still a good person but he needs to work on his anger issues and deal with the incident that involved him and rihanna and realize people wont stop talking about it unless he admitts that he abused her or change his actions .
